WikiLeaks: The Prosecution


On November 30, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) called international whistle-blower organization Wikileaks’ release of sensitive diplomatic cables “illegal, irresponsible and dangerous.” U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Ca) wrote an impassioned op-ed in the Wall Street Journal arguing that WikiLeaks founder and Editor-in-Chief Julian Assange  “intentionally harmed the U.S. government” and “should be vigorously prosecuted for espionage.” And Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard called the leaks “…a grossly irresponsible thing to do and an illegal thing to do.”
